Micro Ice 2021-2022 Teams

The 2021-22 season will be one of the biggest in Micro Ice history!  We are extremely proud that our growth has been the result of our tremendously popular learn to skate, learn to play and our mite development programs as well as our superior year-round hockey/skating skills clinics, and a near-perfect retention rate of team players. As such, we will have very few open spots on our Ice Dogs teams next year and we expect significant interest in those spots.

We emphasize game like situations with maximum pace, repetitions and puck touches to accelerate player development. Our goalies can easily face more than 300+ shots per practice and included in our goalie tuition are GDS Elite Goaltending private lessons, who are located in our building. 

Our tryouts schedule is below. To quote Kurt Russell as Herb Brooks in the movie Miracle, we’re not looking for the best players, we’re looking for the right ones. The right players for our program prioritize learning, sportsmanship and fun above all else. The right players for our program believe in long term development, effort and accountability. Our measurement of success is not to just grow good hockey players but rather to help grow respectful, hard-working, collaborative and confident young adults. 

Because of how few spots we have available and given various Covid-related limitations, tryout sessions are capped at 12 skaters. Therefore we ask you only register for a tryout spot if you are not committed to another team next year and have sincere interest in our program.  If you have any questions, please email tryouts@microicehockey.com. Thank you.
